Russian studio Art Lebedev has designed a series of bite-sized cardboard memory sticks that set a new standard for convenient memory storage. Dubbed Flashkus, the easy-to-use, recyclable storage drives are available in perforated ‘magazine’ strips, and they feature a space to write a brief contents description.

The Moscow-based interface design studio has developed a line of Flashkus disks in an array of sizes ranging from 4 to 16GBs. Despite being a clever new option for portable computer memory, the sticks do raise a series of questions about sustainability. Rather then using a flash drive for a short while and then recycling it, perhaps there’s a case for the longevity of a bigger and more durable hard-drive or other storage device. Still, the Flashkus do fill the gap left by the largely redundant floppy disc, and we could see them offering a great alternative to bulky media kits laden with cds, flash drives, pamphlets, and folders!

    Spotify, the music service that has enthralled its European customers and inspired deep envy in U.S. music lovers, has come to the U.S. By all accounts the service provides a delightfully fast and seamless user experience.

    Thanks for your intriguing article. Other thing is that mesothelioma cancer is generally caused by the breathing of material from mesothelioma, which is a dangerous material. It really is commonly viewed among employees in the building industry who may have long contact with asbestos. It could be caused by living in asbestos protected buildings for a long period of time, Genetics plays a huge role, and some persons are more vulnerable on the risk than others.

    Furthermore, i believe that mesothelioma cancer is a extraordinary form of cancer that is normally found in people previously familiar with asbestos. Cancerous cellular material form within the mesothelium, which is a safety lining that covers the majority of the body’s bodily organs. These cells commonly form from the lining with the lungs, mid-section, or the sac which actually encircles the heart. Thanks for revealing your ideas.
